Hello,
so for a couple days my left control and shift keys haven't been working. I wasn't having any issues with them until they suddenly stopped working, so I wondered if it was some kind of software issue? I tried restoring to before I had the issues but my computer said the restore point was corrupted!

I do have a key missing near, but not right next to, the two keys that aren't working now. So possibly something got in there and stopped it from working? What do you think - software or hardware? Anything I can try? I live in Japan so it's not too easy to get it repaired.

So, to answer my own thread, the most recent Windows update has somehow miraculously fixed the problem (which I think means Windows 8 somehow caused it in the first place.) Of course, I just bought a new computer a few days ago...
